On the Beach at Night Alone Dir: Hong Sang-soo

This acting tour de force by Min-hee Kim, Hong Sang-soo's new muse, grabbed the Silver Bear at the last Berlinale. It is a reverberation of their real-life affair, to which they publicly admitted at the Berlinale press conference. Ultimately, the inspiration for Hong Sang-soo's scripts, which he often pens right on the set, frequently comes from his own life.
